Back to the Future 1979-1989

No more showings

Set to an 80s soundtrack, this video installation looks back at the years 1979-1989 and marks the 40th and 30th anniversaries of some of the most important events in national and global history (from the Iranian Revolution, and the first election victory of Margaret Thatcher, to the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the invention of the World Wide Web). The National Library of Scotland's Back to the Future retrospective is accompanied by a dedicated website and an exhibition of 80s publications from the Library’s vast collections.
